an artist, writer, astrologer, and rabble-rouser. Raised by an artist mother who taught her about astrology and the subtle realms, she spent most of her childhood a little out of step with the others kids, except for a shared obsession with drawing horses. As an adult she pursued academia and activism until a long Pluto transit deepened her relationship with transformation; she then began working more seriously with subtle energy and healing. She taught an introductory astrology course in Philadelphia for five years before relocating to Portland to apprentice with Emily Trinkaus of Virgo Magic.
